Nobel Prize ceremony & 2017 Nobel Laureates Dinner

The Nobel Prize ceremony was held in Stockholm, Sweden on Sunday (December 10) followed by the 2017 Nobel Laureates Dinner on Monday (December 11) at the Stockholm Royal Palace.

First up, the Nobel Prize Ceremony’s head-turning looks.

Alice Bah: As the Swedish Minister of Culture & Democracy, Alice made a statement—quite literally—with her Bea Szenfeld & Naim Josefi gown. The designers created the look for more than just sartorial impact, as it was designed to highlight the melting arctic. The sculptural shoulders could certainly be described as glacial, with the liquid-white effect of the dress completing the picture that had serious undertones to its whimsy.

Princess Sofia of Sweden: The new mother was positively glowing in this Ida Lanto lace confection that was beautifully rendered in a soft, mauve-gray hue. She opted to re-wear her wedding-day tiara here—and when it’s that striking, I say why not.

Crown Princess Victoria: Her tiara also has a story, as the Aquamarine Kokoshnik piece once belonged to Sweden’s Princess Margaretha. She complemented the blue gemstones with her cornflower-hued Jennifer Blom cascading, plisse gown that was lovely against her complexion. A Bottega Veneta clutch completed the look at the Nobel Prize Ceremony.

Next up: the 2017 Nobel Laureates Dinner.

Crown Princess Victoria: Another look, another tiara, as Crown Princess Victoria added sparkler to the garden of watercolour florals that covered this Camilla Thulin gown.

Princess Madeleine: Delicate pink was both soft and elegant in this flowing Elie Saab gown that only enhanced Princess Madeleine’s glow.

Princess Sofia of Sweden: This pastel mint-green gown found beauty in simplicity, as regal minimalism took top billing.

    Alice Bah’s dress is very interesting and she looks good. The first two royals look great — the dresses are traditional and event appropriate and look good on the wearers. The dresses in the last three pictures are whatever.

    I think they all look appropriate. These women are not in show business, they are royalty and have to adhere to whatever standards are set.

    Iam guessing royalty has strict dress code, but I still find their looks to be very matronly and boring every. single. time. Same goes for Duchess Katherine. From what I read before from you, FC, royalty can’t get clothing on loan, they have to pay for it, but damn it for that kind of money each single one could look sensational, and I am all for recycling and repeats!

      Yes. Royals can not accept free clothes. That is why they like to be seen as re wearing to prove they are not wasting tax payers money

      I know some brands tried to gift Kate and they were all returned

    I only like Alice Bah’s dress and Princess Victoria’s blue gown.

    The rest are extremely dated, matronly and sugary sweet. If you would have told me the second gown Princess Victoria is wearing, was made from excess fabric from a Barbara Cartland-sofa, I would have believed you too.

    I’m so tired of Princess Madeleine’s umpteenth interpretation of a pageant barbie. And the fake orange tan is tacky.

    Damn! the minister did not come to play. I like the first looks (from 1 to 4).
    The last row is utterly boring

    I think all of these are nice and event-appropriate.

    Alice Bah looks stunning in that white dress.

    The others are event appropriate and nice.

    Also, I am confused as to the time line of the second row of pics as Madeleine looks pregnant. Maybe they are from 2o16?

    I could easily picture Alice Bah’s dress at the met gala. The Ida Lanto gown is classic fairy tale princess. I also like the florals of the Camila Thulin gown.

    The only one I really love is Princess Sofia’s first gown (Ida Lanto)
